1. Send your 64 best unmarried and childless men and 64 best unmarried childless women on a generation ship.
2. Develop FTL drive.
3. Send your 1,024 most annoying future equivalents of millenials.
4. Have them arrive just hours before the generation ship.
5. The generation ship is greeted by a horde of entitled and hungry locusts expecting someone else to make dinner.
6. The generation ship leaves for Venus.

They'll trade their FTL drive for lunch.

Two stories from the 'be careful what you wish for' department:

Creating clouds to stop global warming could wreak havoc - usatoday

A technology many hoped would fight climate change would cause even bigger environmental problems, scientists say - Chicago Tribune

The first is premised on starting and then stopping abruptly (inadvertently or not)
Quote:
Researchers in the study used computer models to simulate what would happen if geoengineering led to climate cooling and then what would happen if the geoengineering stopped suddenly.
The second on growing biomass specifically to pyrolyze it.
Quote:
But the core idea is burning trees or other plants for energy while pulling in the resulting carbon dioxide and storing it below ground.
Of course, the first of the three Rs is Reduce.

We will avoid huge economic costs, if we address climate change, and we will save lots of money in the long run, by moving to renewable energy.

Increasing carbon in the soil - which will remove it from the air - will also have big benefits. Each gram of carbon in the soil can absorb at least 8 grams of water (and as much as 20gm in some soils), and the biology that created the soil increases, with more carbon. And nutrients are held in the carbon, as well.

Carbon bonds with everything. We can clean up brown fields with carbon, too.

Moon power is the ultimate renewable.

Preta tera is pyrolyized biomass with a mycological infusion. Growing trees to burn to sustain a 'Western standard of living' for all would exhaust the Nitrogen and Phosporus.

What renewable are going to replace fossil fuels?
How does solar wind and wave power make steel, concrete, glass, asphalt, ect?
Because a lot of concrete, steel, glass are needed to build wind solar and wave power, then it all gets moved on asphalt or concrete roads.
